and the senate want to know what went wrong, what members of the obama administration knew, what they knew it and why tke th-pbt do more to prevent the attack or respond in time. chief intelligent correspondent catherine herridge is live on capital hill with all of this. catherine the latest. let's start with the testimony of general petraeus and the testimony we just heard about that secretary clinton will attend. >> well, thank you, jenna and good morning. two important developments here on capitol hill. fox' confirmation this morning that the former cia director david petraeus will testify before the house and senate intelligence committees. these will be closed or classified sessions early friday morning, and also confirmation that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify here on the hill and give the read out, or the results of their internal review at the state department about the benghazi attack, and that announcement was made at the house foreign affairs committee a short time ago. >> further i would like to note that secretary clinton has committed to testifying before our
i just made you that. we like your -- your take on this. the obama administration should model itself after the roosevelt administration during the great depression of world war ii. the head of goldman sachs -- >> not teddy roosevelt. you said the roosevelt. there were two of them. >> stephanie: could i get through this, please. jim knows. he's the official historian. the goldman sachs chief executive said in an opinion piece in the 1930s, there was extreme bitterness between the business community and the roosevelt administration. he wrote corporate executives deplore franklin roosevelt's policies. he said he welcomed their hatred. the two sides worked together spurring a colossal increase that lifted the u.s. out of the great depression. he sees a similar opportunity now once the obama administration and the corporate community compromise so as not to derail the recovery. there is more than a trillion dollars of cash sitting on the balance sheets of companies with certainty about tax rates companies wi
to find a safe haven because they know that the taxes are going to be higher than the obama administration is currently citing and they're afraid and they're terrified. >> that amounts to tax evasion, you move money off shore you've got to declare where it is and any income that you made on it. and are you telling us that rich folks are basically avoiding taxes? >> well, i think they're trying to be creative, like they always have been of the creativity makes the rich wealthy and that's what i found out over interviewing them over the last 30 years is that creativity is the best thing and i think they're trying to be honest about it, but creative. >> when does it come back to america? >> i don't know. it's a really good question, i'm asking them that and they don't know either. is america ever going to be the same? i don't know, four more years of both the obama administration, are we going to-- are we going to recognize this question after four more years, i hope so, i don't know. stuart: you're painting a pretty grim idea of the mood. it sounds like they're in despair. >> they are. there
scandals, events and even acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely,

, this was the obama administration's watergate. >> officials say petraeus's decision to leave the cia was entirely personal and had nothing to do with benghazi or politics. but that's not how fox news sees it. >> there's not many stories that could knock the president's reelection right out of the headlines. not many. we got one. >> are you assuming that's why they didn't tell the story until after the election? >> the plot thickens. >> the fact that his scandal wasn't mentioned prior to the election, that would have had an impact on the election. >> i suspect the tough chicago guys knew about this affair for awhile and held it in their pocket until they needed to play their card. >> the questions mount and mount and mount. was this covered up until after the election, which would compromise safety in favor of politics? which is disgusting. like that hasn't happened. >> the drone, fast and furious. >> all these things have been happening after the election. >> at lot of people have affairs and they don't have to quit. >> let's bring in richard wolffe, msnbc political analyst and executive editor o
preaches to. so heading now into another four years of the obama administration, where are we and why are we here? how to get somewhere else? how do we live up to that promise? what went wrong -- what's going right in what can we do about it going forward? >> simple. first of all, i don't thing that the favorability ratings -- there we go. so i don't think favorability rating in the pew surveys are evidence of whether were doing something wrong or right and i think it's a huge mistake for anybody who practices public diplomacy to think his or her job is to win a popularity contest. so while i guess maybe some of us in the bush administration can take a certain pleasure at the fact that in 2008 the favorability ratings for the united states for higher in four out of the five surveyed air countries. i'm not even going to bring that up. but i do think it's a big mistake and in my view during my short tenure as undersecretary is to disabuse that notion and rather to focus attention on what public diplomacy can do to achieve specific ends that are part of -- that are close in foreign polic
major question, a lot of the answers of your not kidding, what was the assessment of the obama administration of the area where there consular was? there's a big difference. if this was an area as secure as iceland or waziristan. time confident that there were cables that said there are ten training centers for militias around that location. so i would like to know if the administration basically perceived the location is dangerous there for what were the measures and therefore when the attack occurred, the kind of response would be appropriate to the type of assessment. that is what we want to know. >> chairman of the house securities committee is very direct saying the documents that we see that the cia had prior to general petraeus coming in, it is impossible to believe he thought he was giving as at the time on his testimony, testimony supporting what became the brought fiction of an inch and a video. congressman king is saying point blank. he believes that petraeus was under the thumb of the administration, coerced and blackmail and a statement. >> i think i no general pet

critic of the obama administration to benghazi tetchered expectation. >> the power in power never likes a select committee but i am hope that the american people will demand it. and i am guardedly optimistic that they will achieve that goal. >> as he walked away from a mid-day news conference senate majority leader harry reid told reporters he would in out support the idea that chair and ranking members of the senate homeland security committee who have their own investigation said the proposal was premature. >> i do not see the benefit nor the need for a select committee. >> in closed briefings today, fox news told the f.b.i. deputy director and his boss robert mueller face hard questions about the f.b.i. petraeus investigation. the acting director of the c.i.a. fielding questions about the attack. >> thursday, the nation's senior intelligence and lawmaker officials will testify in classified session to house intelligence committee that is closed to the public and reporters. fox news learned former c.i.a. director david petraeus voluntarily agreed to testify before both committees. whi
. it's certainly a huge deal for the obama administration. we have new details about when and how the president was told about the allen bombshell. and the latest development, our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is joining us now. jessica, first of all, what are you learning? >> hi, wolf. we understand that the president was first told there might be trouble with general allen and this investigation on friday, when the white house's counsel office was notified that there could be trouble with his nomination to become nato supreme allied commander. then on monday evening, the president was notified that secretary of defense leon panetta has referred to matter to the defense department's inspector general. keep in mind, now, according to the timetable, the president had also just been told on thursday about general petraeus' indiscretions, so it must have been an awful lot to take in all in one week, right after the election. secretary -- press secretary jay carney says, though, it was out of the white house's hands, this time frame, for their notification. listen to
security in libya? two, did the obama administration try to mislead people as to the nature of the attack? and, three, did the administration deny pleas from our people at the consulate for help? let's start with the first. why didn't -- why didn't -- why wasn't there more security in libya previous -- previous to these attacks? >> well, first of all, assessments from the ground apparently were not getting back to washington, were not getting high enough. that compound was under surveillance by the local services. benghazi itself is a jungle. all sorts of islamic groups. somebody should have raised the red flag early on and either fortified that consulate or simply closed it. somebody made a mistake. i don't know who that was, whether it was the state department or the cia or the combination of the two. but they probably, in the loit of today, they should have pu pulled out a long time ago and run all these operations -- >> just going on to topic number two, did the obama administration try to mislead us as to the nature of the attack? we all heard what susan rice said. republicans say sh
to the intelligence assessment. >> general, we have the gop still suggesting that the obama administration concealed the fact benghazi was a terror attack for political reasons. from what we have learned from general petraeus's testimony, doesn't it seem the administration held back information, if they did so it was because a genuine national security concern existed? >> well, you know, my take on this, alex, this is centralist political posturing inside washington. the problem was we had inadequate ground security there. that's a state department function, not cia. when the thing went bad we had this am bass do, bilingual in arabic, he shouldn't have been there. that was the problem. but -- characterized the mob was minutiae for good next sakes. libya is a mess. there's no government, no army. it's not a success. probably better than having that monster gadhafi and his family in charge of it. but that's the problem. they have to get their eyesight up. we've got a war in afghanistan going that's running us $6 billion a month and several hundred killed and wounded a month. and here we're focused on
it down to this point, was the obama administration incredibly incompetent or did they mislead congress, or did they just simply not know. probably it's a little bit of all three. >> let's turn to suzanne kelly. the fascinating thing again today was the senators allowed in to see this video, this closed circuit television video, that included very disturbing scenes of ambassador stevens' last moments. but also, it seemed to clarify, didn't it, exactly what was going on in the buildup to this attack. there was no obvious sign, according to the senators who have come out publicly after this, of any protest. >> yeah. that's what we've been hearing from people who are in those hearings, piers, and you know, it's interesting because nobody has seen this video yet. it's actually still classified. they're not even really officially supposed to be talking about classified information but i know there's a push to get at least some of this video released publicly. you have to remember, it's going to be a bit tricky because it is still classified and it is still part of the ongoing fbi investigati
he's convinced that rice is part of an obama administration cover-up over the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. mccain articulated his theory this morning, pledging to do everything he can to stop rice's nomination from moving forward. >> susan rice should have been known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she would have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> and of course, mccain has enlisted reinforcements. here's comes senator lindsey graham of south carolina who is also questioning rice's credibility. >> i don't trust. the reason i don't trust her, because i think she knew better, and if she doesn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> this afternoon, the president smack them both down. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> today's repudiation of mccain's
on and on about the different gifts the obama administration had given to different couldn't constituents. he said quote, free contraceptives were big with young college-aged women. it struck me, because they said the democrats are reducing women to abortion and birth control. women are much more than that. apparently in the analysis after the fact, mitt romney believes that women just voted because obama was going to give them free birth control. they should have just sent out condoms and birth control. much more effective. >> obama is doing good giving out phones. >> look, whatever you think of the substance of this, and i will say that there's a little truth in here in that democrats did not promise free stuff, and that i don't think that's why people voted for obama. people voted for obama because they liked him, and they believed that his policies are going to work in a second term. democrats certainly did threaten that republicans were going to take a lot of their stuff away. so you could find some truth in there, but i will say never a good idea to blame the electorate. never a good idea to
the obama administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me just say the comments
thinks that government comes down to. because the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this was unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> you know, chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it, i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say, yes, they were bought off that, obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victims who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47
at the performance of susan rice, among others, and the obama administration, and so, harry reid sent a letter yesterday and told john mccain he is not going to get the special committee he wanted. but i think the administration simply is going to have to watch republicans spend their energy on this. david petraeus tried to make the argument, defending susan rice, that she was repeating talking points, that she'd been given for the reason that the administration did not want to alert terrorist groups that we knew that they were behind the attack. i'm not sure that that's going to quiet the criticism. we're just going to have to see how long it plays out. >> you saw the meeting yesterday with the president and congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. how confident are you that a compromise will be reached in a timely fashion? >> pretty confident, actually, alex. you know, i thought the outcome of that meeting was about as positive as you could hope to see from a bipartisan meeting of congressional leaders with the president of the united states, all four leaders, pelosi, mcconnell, reid, boeh
it tell us about the whole approach, the light footprint that the obama administration recommended. >> chris: what would that be? i haven't heard that phrase until today. but it is in the papers. >> the idea that once we had gadhafi out in libya, we weren't going to go in with a big new presence and huge new diplomatic installation and we were going to try and do more sort of with less as it were. >> chris: not in libya... >> and that is being applied across the region as well. >> chris: it is interesting, up to this point, secretary of state clinton has kind of avoided much fire of libya. she said that she was taking responsibility for it, but that was in the middle of the night, at an interview down in south america. and she has been absent from the hearings, so far. as they focus, maybe less on the timeline and more on the question of why these diplomats were so undefended, so vulnerable, with all the warnings before hand, could secretary clinton come under fire. >> she'll have to answer questions, but i imagine what she'll say is they didn't realize how vulnerable they were and
group of donors. romney arguing president obama won in part because of gifts the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gift to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters. number two put in place obamacare which is basically $10,000 a family. a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what they will vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america i
of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true i guess it does. they have managed to bury the benghazi story. the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel any obligation to bring it up. if they put that past the election and they put this petraeus thing past the election. this second term is going to be pretty ugly people not going to go away. >> it won't be the bad guys some indication that his whatever you want to call her, his friend may have made a speech and given away some secret information that she may or may not have gotten. >> bill: only thing that could happen is if holder gets dragged into this because he may because he obviously overseas the fbi and he knew what was going on and if he see that he bury it and got fast and furious on his resume. >> you can bury certain things for only a certain amount of time. and second terms are not kind to second term presidents. i think coupled with the stagnant econom
from him? joining me now is congressman chaffetz, one of the biggest critics of the obama administration's handling of the benghazi attack. what do you want to know? the senate has its own concerns. >> well i would love to know from the president back on june 6th when there was a terrorist attack on our benghazi facility was the president aware of that, what did he do about it. during the attack itself does not appear based on the information the department of defense revealed on friday, that the president took any action or gave any directive for our military to go in and engage in the fire fight and extract our forces and then the third part i want to know about is, why did the president mislead the american people about what happened on the ground because it was clear that the intelligence officers, the state department was able to witness this in real time. there was no indication there was a mob. no indication that a video was the jen ne sis of this. why did the administration for weeks mislead the american people. >> they claim they were not misleading the american p

to the bottom of it. what republicans are saying is the obama administration has put out very conflicting stories about what happened in benghazi, when they knew about it, what they did about it and how they sort of perpetuated the idea this was a spontaneous attack. so the republicans on capitol hill are saying we only need to get through the double talk. get to the bottom of what happened. we lost an american am bas dpor. three other americans. president obama said i did everything i could as soon as we found out this is happening. then how come the whole place was left completely undefended? there's so many big ands of questions. that's what senator mccain was getting at yesterday when he said let's put together a committee that can look at this specifically, rather than having it scattered and half a dozen committees looking at it. this may give us a better answer faster. that's ultimately what everybody wants to keep the americans safe abroad and in the future. >> is this part of the mccain and obama conflict from 2008? >> i think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mcca

are the some of the temporary stimulus measures in the early obama administration and also in 2011 that were temporary tax cuts that were designed to give the economy a boost by their nature that are temporary and should be revisited. we may conclude the economy still needs that boost and that is totally appropriate. some of it is the alternative minimum tax that is basically always broken and always needs some changes to it. the sequesters on domestic and defense spending are products of the blackmail episode of 2011 when congressional leaders refused to enter, refused to do as is routinely done and extend the debt limit and created this sequester as a way to force some action they had no intention of doing themselves. but the biggest part of it comes from the bush tax cuts and the reason the bush tax cuts expire is an interesting story. in 2001 and 2003, 2001 we had a budget surplus and both democrats and republicans wanted to cut taxes. democrats wanted to cut them half as much and put more emphasis on the middle class, less on tax cuts for the rich. republicans did not only want, they wa
